I am sorry but do you call the Siberian clip from JFK funny? It's not funny at all. It's scary.
For several reasons.
Obviously, there is a disoriented pilot with marginal English. Clearly, he has problems understanding the controller and probably finding his way around the airport.
On the other end, there is a controller who does not appreciate that fact at all. The controller wants to obtain the read-back without realizing that the mechanical read-back he is trying to impose on the pilot is NOT a guarantee of the comprehension of the instruction.
The controller uses lots of unnecessary words ("sir", "I'm busy", etc.) that confuses the pilot even further.
I think we tend to forget that the bad communications were behind some of the deadliest accidents.
